You’re probably bored with me rambling all the time (who isn’t?!). Well, I’ve got good news for you! This post is intended to let you hear what my daughter has to say instead! Although she’s only eight, she’s got a good head on her shoulders. She’s always been a good kid and she’s a thinker. Her smarts make me raise an eyebrow sometimes with the things she says. You’d think that with a brain like hers that she’d be no fun to hang out with, but she’s the exact opposite. She’s the social butterfly, a barrel of laughs, and a ham to boot! She could make you wonder if she’ll be the next Elon Musk, Wanda Sykes, or Taylor Swift.
Hey, regular readers – just thought I’d drop a quick note to let you know about a guest post that I recently did on getting the nerve to retire early.

I got to do something really cool recently – I got to be a part of the Millionaire Interview series that John at ESI Money puts together. I met John in Dallas, Texas during FinCon17 and we shared a lot of good laughs during the trip. The funny thing about FinCon is that you can go there not really knowing anyone and leave there with friends you feel like you’ve known all your life. As a side note, there’s still time to get tickets to FinCon18 in Orlando. If you’ve been on the fence, now’s the time to pull the trigger – you won’t regret it! Register here. So a few months after FinCon, I realized I had already hit the
Is retiring early really the best thing for our family? That’s the question Mrs. R2R sought to answer. Since the Route to Retire blog started in May of 2015, I’ve been hoping to get the other side of the R2R equation (Mrs. R2R) to be a part of the conversation here. It’s easy to get the opinion of one person on the subject of financial independence and retiring early. However, it’s a completely different story to hear what that person’s better half has to say about the subject. Sometimes you have a saver and a spender in the relationship. Maybe you have someone ready to retire early and someone who really enjoys working with no plans to ever stop. Getting
